The Wellington County Road System has traffic volumes ranging from 100 to 25,000 per day and has over 225 traffic counting stations on County roads.
Traffic Signals within the County roads system are installed to contribute to the safe movement of vehicles and pedestrians. The County conducts regular movement studies at major intersections to determine future signal installation requirements.
All traffic signal designs meet Ministry of Transportation standards and are based on volume of traffic, turning movements, geographic conditions, etc. The intersections are studied and timing and phasing of all movements are considered before implementation.
